Tabanan has its roots in the 14th century when Javanese invaders settled in the area.
As they expanded their territory, they came into conflict with the Mengwi house, founded during the mid 1600th with the fall of Gelgel and allied with Buleleng.
In the 18th century, Mengwi was the 2nd most powerful royal house after Klungkung, whose support they enjoyed. Internal conflict int he late 1700s weakened Mengwi and led to territorial losses to Tabanan which were retaken in the mid 1800s. By the late 1800s further conflict erupted and Klungkung withdrew its support, opening the way for its destruction by Klungkung, Badung, Tabanan, Bangli, and the Dutch. Tabanan got most of Mengwi, but rising Dutch interests in Bali and the refusal of Tabanan to give the ruler and his son.
